someone's got a lot to learn if they think improper chain lube caused a chain to "snap". . . try again. I'd find the cause of the failure before i had that bike on the street/track if i was in your shoes bro. There's bad news associated with breaking/throwing a chain at high speeds.

I do
motoX chain maintainance and streetbike chain maintainence are totally different,
yea the grease attracts buts that's why you clean it off first and then reapply fresh.

remind me never to buy a motor vehicle off you
are you kidding, 20,000 miles without lubing and there wasn't any tight spots, elongation, sprocket damage, rust or wear ..............
You know DID VM & ZVM chains (X-ring) chains used to come with a 12,000 mile warantee SUBJECT to cleaning and re-lubing.
and DID know more about chains than you, Susan Dey or my old man put together

regardless chain lube did not cause his chain to snap. pretty much impossible.

chances are he overtightened his chain or had some other problem to cause it to snap.

correct me if im wrong but didnt the fellow that started this thread mention chain lube snapping his chain? i never lube mine and havent snapped one yet.
you really believe chain lube caused his chain to snap because you don't lube yours and it hasn't
fresh lube lubes funnily enough
you put in on the inside of the rollers/plates so that as the chain turns the centrifugal forces push it through.
put it on the outside and it mostly just flicks off as you say.
